You may think that following ADA (American Dental Association) guidelines like brushing twice a day and flossing will keep your smile in perfect condition. But the truth is that some patients must deal with a factor that’s simply out of their control. You must consider the role your genetics play in your oral health. For your Plantation dentist, one of the benefits of getting a genetic history for each patient is being aware of what symptoms to keep in mind for potential dental problems. For example, if your family has a history of gum disease, your dentist may ask you to come in for a cleaning and fluoride treatment every four months rather than semiannually to prevent this dental problem altogether.
